Dinner w mah Homies 128155

127860 FOOD: Pesto Pasta + Chicken • Bacon Miele Pizza • 4 Cheese Pizza • Tiramisu.

127837The PASTA was good. Not the best and most flavorful pesto for me. I think I just want my pesto tastier, yung nababad na yung noodles sa sauce and kumapit na yung pesto. 128517128518 But this was still pretty good. Generous amount of grilled chicken added, lots of parmesan cheese, and the pasta was cooked al dente.

127829PIZZA. The bacon miele, as expected, was good. Sweet, salty, and YUMMY. It's a must must!! Bacon lovers will surely love this one! 128521 The cheese pizza was just okay. Was expecting more, something screaming CHEESY OVERLOAD. At least something cheesier than the usual cheese pizza since this is part of the "Top 10 cheese pizza in Manila". Suddenly, this tasted too ordinary. 128532

127856 TIRAMISU. This was good. Not super super good but not that bad. Just not that memorable, imo.

128105🏻‍127859: SERVICE was good and fast. 💯 Staffs are nice and accommodating.

After having a disappointing dining experience recently at Pizza Hut, I had the chance of going to Pepperoni Pizzeria in BGC and man, I wish the former would learn from this new pizzeria as they seemed to be more experienced in their field. At Pepperoni Pizzeria, everything seems to be about innovation.

I have noticed that there isn’t that much price difference between pizzas from the typical pizza places and that of Pepperoni’s. I’d have to say that pizzas from Pepperoni Pizzeria are freshly baked ones and of good quality. The only thing about their pizza that I am not happy about is the soft crust, which made the pizza soggy. Nevertheless, I still think that their vegetarian pizza rocks.

If you are to have a pasta dish, you may actually choose from a variety of pasta, ranging from fusilli, penne, and tortiglioni. We had Pepperoni’s alle verdurine, which is priced at Php360. All the stuff in it worked well together, and I’m so glad that they gave us a hefty portion of it. Their alle verdurine was so good, I recommend this dish to everyone. This one’s definitely a must have when you visit Pepperoni Pizzeria.

Food:
4.5 stars for the fried portobello smothered with gravy and caramelized onions and chicken strips. Although this is classified as an appetizer, it can be a full meal on its own.
The fresh greens on top of the pizza adds crisp and that, freshness. Its not the heavy kind of pizza so one can enjoy a couple of slices. Try to always get a little bit of that really good prosciutto parma on each bite (wink!)
Ambience: Well lit and very clean. The design is tasteful and pleasant. Very good fir a NOT noisy kind of family or group gathering.
Staff: Very friendly.
Service: Meals are prepared as ordered so it may understandably take a couple of minutes.
Price. Not cheap. But manageable. Php 400-600 for a single person. That's without the beverage. Water is free.

VERY MUCH RECOMMENDED

Meeting with Food Society Ph is synonymous to a mini food crawl. Last night was no exception as we visited three restaurants #MasibaLang 128514128514128514.

After an underwhelming experience at Olivia, we decided to swing by Peperoni next. Pizza makes everything okay. And we are in dire need of a decent plate of pasta.

Bacon Miele. This is as glorious as I remember. The bacon is nothing but awesome - smoky, addictive and makes the pizza 100 times better.

Quattro Formaggi. Mozzarella, Taleggio, Gorgonzola, Scamorza Cheese. This falls on the "just okay" category for me. It is not as cheesy as i want it to be. I still give them mad props for the effort though.

Pesto. Linguine tossed in pesto made with pine nuts, basil and garlic. Okay, this is the best tasting pesto I have had in a while. I love how nutty it is - the glorious pine nuts! Each spoonful is as good as the next. Man, i can eat this all day.

P.S. I am using a recycled photo of the pizza. I didn't get a decent shot of the others.

Peace Out!

I had a hard time finding this restaurant, it was at a corner on the 3rd floor haha but the food was great! They had a promo which is available during weekdays, i got a soup (mixed vegetables was their soup of the day) which i super liked and the arabiata pasta on the photo for just P360. The pasta i have to admit was a little too spicy for me but also garlicky. You can also choose what pasta you prefer. It also came with a drink, you can choose between lemon and raspberry iced tea. I liked the iced tea very much i just don't get why it was pinkish when its supposed to be lemon. But everything was good! Too bad i was alone so i didn't get to try their pizza.

I've been dying to try Peperoni Pizzeria since they first opened but never had the chance to do so. But thanks to looloo, I was finally able to try this place one Thursday night. Also, sorry for reviewing this just now. Better late than never! 128518

I wanted to go back again before reviewing this place because during the rendezvoos, we were late and was not able to fully enjoy the dishes anymore. Good thing, Peperoni Pizzeria was so generous and gave us GCs!!! 128588🏼 So one Sunday night, I brought my family here and finally had the chance to use the GCs they gave! 128513

PLACE:

The place is simple but still nice and pretty. When you pay attention to the details you'll be amazed with how they designed and decorated the place. Well, the first thing you'll notice will be the huge "All we Knead is Love" which basically explains how they do everything. All made with love! 9786128521 Try to look around and you'll see a lot of other interesting pieces like wooden peels and the light bulbs. The ingredients all displayed as well and the open kitchen where you can see them prepare your pizza. I like how chill and relaxed the place is. Plus, good news!!! No signs of langaw anymore! Yay!! 128518128517

FOOD:

During the last rendezvoos, I was able to bring one whole box of pizza to my family (that's how generous PP was)! My family loved the Bacon Miele so we ordered that again. Since you can have flavors in 1 medium or large sized pizza, we also tried the Suprema. For lola, we ordered the Carbonara pasta and for me, one salad. 128154

127829 PIZZA. The bacon miele, as always, was good. You can never go wrong with the combination of sweet and salty. No wonder why this is one of the most ordered pizza here. You should order this one. 128076🏼 The Suprema, on the other hand, was just okay. Bacon miele talaga! 128155 Also got to try during the rendezvoos the Prosciutto + Arugula pizza and it was pretty good. The toppings were very generous.

127837 PASTA. Carbonara. Not a fan of cream based pasta so I didn't tried this anymore but they finished this one. Ask them if it was good, and they said it was pretty okay. Masarap daw. Also got to try the Aglio Olio pasta last time. It may look so simple and plain but it was good. It was tasty and was cooked oh so well. I enjoyed the garlicky taste with a slight hint of spiciness. 128077🏼

127811 SALAD. Garden Salad. Usual salad. Mixed Greens + Cherry Tomatoes + Olives + Balsamic Vinaigrette. Nothing extra ordinary. If you want to feel healthy, you may want to order pizza but you can skip this one and just order the Bacon Miele pizza! 128155

SERVICE:

Service was excellent. We didn't have to wait for more than 10 minutes for all our orders to be complete. All were served hot and freshly made. Servers were attentive and very approachable. 128077🏼

Overall, we enjoyed our dinner here. We all agreed that the Bacon Miele pizza iz zi best. Probably one of the good tasting pizzas we've tried. 128525128076🏼

Set Lunch A @ 320Php

Pizza • Garden Salad • Iced Raspberry Tea

Excellent!

Bacon Miele Pizza. Thin crust, wood-fired pizza. It has my love, bacon and that's all that matters! It has a sweet flavor because of the honey and it is surprisingly awesome! Drizzle it with their chili-garlic oil to enhance its flavor. The best tasting pizza for me.

Garden Salad. Fresh greens, tomato, and olives. The dressing is just right. This is perfect for health conscious like me. lol 128514

The place is big and bright. It has a welcoming atmosphere. The service is quick and fast.

I will definitely come back for that Bacon Miele pizza. 10084

Me and my sister were craving for prosciutto pizza a week ago, but wasn't able to go to any pizza place since I was not around for the weekend. My sister and I then decided to have it this Saturday. We arrived the restaurant at around 11:30am. It was the perfect time of the day for photos since the place wasn't jammed yet and the lighting is awesome.

The servers opened the glass doors as they greeted us with smiles and led us to the couch. We sat down and checked their menu. The server then proceeded to inform us that we can have two flavors in one pizza for the large and XXL sizes. She also mentioned their bestsellers and left us to decide.

We ordered the calamari fritti, carbonara, half prosciutto di parma and half quattro formaggi large pizza and piña colada. Here are my thoughts on the dishes:

Calamari Fritti P355
This was a nice appetizer that the restaurant was able to bring out of the kitchen after a few minutes. The squid was soft and wasn't rubbery. I liked that it was easy to cut and chew. I also enjoyed dipping it in both the sauces.

Carbonara P445
I loved this. Although it's not something really grand or different, I loved it because it was simply my type of carbonara. It was creamy, but not drowning in sauce. I also liked that the sauce was able to stick to the pasta. It was also well seasoned, though we loved showering it with parmesan cheese.

Prosciutto Crudo di Parma and Quattro Formaggi P565
The recommended flavors of the pizza were the prosciutto crudo di parma and the bacon miele. We first decided on having the prosciutto and the carbonara, so we thought that having the bacon miele as well will kill us! So we just went on to having the quattro formaggi for the other half of our pizza. I liked their pizza. The crust was thin and crisp and didn't taste burnt.

The prosciutto pizza had marinara sauce as the base topped with prosciutto and arugula. It was good, although I would've preferred it better with more prosciutto xD Also, my first piece of pizza had more marinara sauce in it that made it difficult for me to taste the prosciutto. The arugula was fine as well as it wasn't bitter.

The quattro formaggi was just okay. We were expecting it to be more salty (and cheesy). I was thinking of ordering the margherita at first, so I guess I should've gotten that instead. That could've had more flavor.

Ambiance is nice, no doubt about that! Notice also that their lightbulbs are attached to the wooden "peels" that chefs use to put the pizzas in the oven. It was a nice touch. I also can't get over their slogan "All We Knead is Love". It kinda supports all the pizza memes we have these days.

Service was also outstanding! Servers were quick and attentive. They also visited our table to ask us how the food was and even conversed with us a bit.

The dishes are quite pricey, given that the serving wasn't much. Our total bill reached around P1,600+ and there were just two of us (two ladies). No left overs, too! We finished everything we ordered. It wasn't easy, but we finished it anyway.

Overall, I have nothing to complain about this restaurant. Everything just made me happy. Will come back to try more!

Pardon the bad photography 128517 too hungry to find a good angle 9996🏻️ we ordered some pizza and salad just enough for three people to share with enough room for desser 128513

Pizza: Prosciutto crudo di parma (right half) and margherita (left half)
The right half is their best seller and the left half is my best flavor, i always order margherita pizza as this is my basis to judge pizzas since this is the most common variety and it has all the basic topping from a pizza, cheese and tomato, the basil which represents the fresh element. Overall their pizza is good, crust had that perfect crisp, toppings were evenly distributed, and the combination of toppings blended in perfect harmony

Salad: chicken salad
The name is so straight forward, grilled chicken fillet strips combined with parm and an array of lettuce with some mayo dressing, salad is as simple as its name, quality wise it is good indeed

Their pizza is good for 3-4 people depending on the number of dishes you order along with it, salad on the other hand is good for 2 people, 3 if you ought to make it an appetizer.

Service was good, crew are attentive and courteous 128077🏻

|ooloo rendezvoos on a Thursday night with Pam L. and Gwen I. from the crew and a mix of reviewers - the usual suspects Ruth D., Ruth S. and Mary Love S., Kevinross B. who I've met from Fely J's rendezvoos and those that I've met for the first time - EJ B., Patrick V. and Angela Marie C..

Been wanting to visit Peperoni Pizzeria but never had the chance so this rendezvoos was the perfect time! I didn't let the rain nor the traffic hinder me and I got to the location just in time. I was welcomed by Mikee, marketing head, and Andrew Chan, the owner/president, himself. Can I just say that he was a very simple guy and was very fun to talk to?!? And very young too! Seriously, he was so friendly and accommodating, it felt like he was a fellow foodie!

We got to chat a lot and found out that Peperoni Pizzeria is a franchise from SG. It was actually one of Andrew's favorite pizza place when he was still finishing his undergraduate course in SG. He was so passionate about Peperoni Pizzeria and since he was a regular customer before, he knew almost every tidbit of their products - the ingredients, the method of cooking, the taste, his favorites, etc etc. He told us that the Les Amis Group chanced upon his father, owner of CMG Philippines that carries CLN, and partnered with them to bring the brand here. Isn't it cool how a former patron became a franchise owner in his country?

The place was brightly lit and has a relaxed and chill vibe with choice interiors. Industrial design with drop lamps, shelves filled with wine, specialty beers, huge tomato sauce cans, pasta filled jars, pizza boxes and some faux greens - it was simple, casual but stylish! They were able to properly mix materials for texture and contrast - wood, metal, bricks, unfinished walls - resulting to overall clean interiors with splashes of colors and here and there. They also had clean white walls that served as canvass for some framed pictures.

Andrew prepared a feast for us. We started off with some appetizers --

> Calamari Fritti for 355Php
- No fuss deep fried squid rings that were crunchy outside with that perfect golden brown color. Loved that the squid was perfectly cooked - tender and easy to chew. Came in with lemon mayo and arrabbiata sauce. Perfect starter!

> Funghi Portobello con Pollo for 455Php
- I'm not much of a mushroom lover because I've been fed too much canned button mushrooms when I was young but I'm slowly loving em mushrooms now (except for canned button mushrooms, im sarry). I was kinda skeptical with this appetizer but what the, I still dove into it and I'm happy to report that I LOVED IT! Whole Portobello mushroom that has been deep-fried, I love the crunch from the breading. This was served on a bed of greens, topped with sauteed chicken fillet in a red wine sauce. Chicken was tender and the sauce was so good! A contrast of sweet and salty, the red wine sauce was the perfect pair to the mushroom.

Onto the Pasta, we were able to try the Aglio Olio e Peperoncino and Andrew got a bowl of Carbonara when the last batch of loolooers came in.

> Aglio Olio e Peperoncino for 340Php
- This pasta is so simple, no meat, no need for cream or tomato sauce, but when it's done right, it could steal the show! Good thing Peperoni's version did not disappoint! It was so good I could eat an entire serving all by myself! Al dente pasta, olive oil, garlic and red chili - that's it! Just the right garlic kick, just enough black pepper and herbs, just the right amount of olive oil plus the spiciness was on point. Yummy!

> Carbonara for 445Php
- Carbonara is the safest pasta you can order when you see it in the menu. Peperoni's Carbonara is a bacon lover's dream come true! Al dente pasta in a light cream sauce with LOTS OF BACON!!! Seriously, there's just a lot. It's creamy and salty delicious! Sure hit for kids as well.

Then we got to sample some of their pizza variants - fifteen flavors, thin crust and baked in a wood-fire brick oven. According to Andrew, this ensures that each pizza will cook fast and evenly. Also, all of their pizza flavors are priced equally to give people the chance to choose what they really want instead of choosing based on the price. Genius! You can also combine up to two flavors in one!

Of all the variants, Bacon Miele and Prosciutto Crudo di Parma were my favorites.

> Bacon Miele was the only white cheese pizza in their menu. With a base of gouda cheese instead of the usual tomato sauce, this pizza was loaded with smokey bacon chunks, fresh oregano and just the right amount of honey to give it it's signature sweet and savory contrast. I loved every bit of this and even searched through the boxes to make sure that I'll bring the extra slices home!

> Prosciutto Crudo di Parma is your best bet if you want the ultimate bang for your buck! It has all the expensive ingredients - prosciutto crudo (oh my gosh my favorite!!!), which is the uncooked version of prosciutto, mozzarella, cheddar cheese and a nice rocket salad - arugula and fresh shavings of Parmesan cheese. I loved the contrast of sweet, salty and bitter flavors and each bite will give you a good portion of the each ingredient.

> Diavola is next in my list. Not a Pepperoni Pizza kind of gal because I find it boring with no other ingredients going on but I must admit that Peperoni's version changed my mind. They obviously didn't scrimp on the good stuff - loads of pepperoni slices, gooey mozzarella and the tomato base had this distinct freshness in it that didn't taste like your ordinary tomato sauce. It was somewhat sweet and sour at the same time.

> Pancetta was something different. It's more like your "breakfast" pizza because it has soft egg in the middle surrounded by tomatoes and pancetta which is basically like bacon. It was kinda weird to be honest. You have to break and spread out the soft egg before taking a slice. It was like eating my favorite childhood breakfast - toast with ketchup and mashed sunny side-up egg. It's good but not something that everyone will like.

Just a little note, pancetta = cured pork belly. When the pork belly is smoked after being cured, then, that's bacon. Prosciutto is cured ham, usually sliced thinly and served uncooked.

> Least favorite was the Quattrro Formaggi. Maybe because I like my four cheese pizza in a white sauce rather than red. This has mozzarella, taleggio, scarmoza and gorgonzola cheese which stood out as expected.

Now my favorite part of all - DESSERT!!! We tried three out of the six in their menu.

> Tortino al Cioccolato for 365Php
- My top dessert for the night! Warm chocolate cake that wasn't too heavy nor too light but still with a rich chocolate flavor, baked with a molten center. Each spoonful was oozing with chocolaty goodness. Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream to break the chocolate flavor monotony a little and you're good to go.

> Tiramisu for 275Php
- Not bad at all! I'm no Tiramisu expert and I've only tried a couple but I liked Peperoni's version. Savoiardi Lady Fingers soaked in a mixture of aromatic coffee with kahlua, layered with a rich and creamy mascarpone. It's plated nicely with some fresh strawberry slices, strawberry syrup and a dusting of cocoa powder. This could have been knockout if it had a stronger coffee and liquor taste.

> Crème Brûlée for 240Php - I would like to love this one because the vanilla bean custard had a nice vanilla flavor in it, creamy and smooth but it was just too runny for a crème brûlée. Would have been best if it was a little solid or firm.

Overall, I loved our dinner at Peperoni Pizzeria. Andrew was such a generous host that he had us bring home boxes of pizza! Excited to bring my family here! And oh, good news for foodies living in the QC area! They are set to open a branch in UP Town Center this coming September!

Peperoni Pizzeria, Uptown Mall

It's always fun to join a |ooloo rendezvoos. Aside from free, overflowing food, I learn more about the establishments we visit.

It is interesting to know that CMG Philippines, a company known in the shoe retail industry, was the one to close the deal with Singapore's Les Amis Group in opening up a Peperoni Pizzeria branch here in Manila. And that's thanks to owner Andrew Chan who was actually a regular customer of Peperoni in Singapore during the time he was studying there. It was a really cool story, how their eventual partnership happened.

So for the rendezvoos, our gracious hosts, owner Andrew and Marketing Head Mikee, served us the following:

🔹 Calamari Fritti. Deep fried squid rings served with 2 dips, lemon mayo and arrabbiata sauce. This was good. The squid wasn't too chewy.

🔹 Funghi Portobello con Pollo. This is deep fried portobello with sauteed chicken fillets in red wine sauce. This was good but could be a little tastier.

🔹Aglio Olio e Peperoncino. Pasta with sliced garlic and red chili in olive oil. I've always loved this simple dish. Good thing the spiciness of Peperoni's version was tolerable for me. Pasta was al dente.

🔹Quattro Formagi Pizza. Mozzarella, taleggio, scamorza, gorgonzola. Can't really differentiate and can't tell how many kinds are on it but as long as it's really cheesy, it's all good!

🔹Bacon Miele Pizza. ULTIMATE FAVORITE. I tried this during my first visit. Loved it then, love it still.

🔹Diavola Pizza. Pepperoni. Another simple one that I really like.

🔹Pancetta Pizza. This had cured bacon, tomatoes, and soft egg. This was a little weird for me. I'm not sure if it's something I'd try again as I can't quite explain its taste.

🔹Prosciutto Crudo Di Parma Pizza. Parma ham and salad on a pizza. Sometimes I like arugula, sometimes I don't. But if it's on a pizza, I'll take it.

🔹Tiramisu. I love that the coffee and kahlua flavors of their tiramisu are not too overpowering nor too subtle. Just right.

🔹Creme Brulee. A little runny but the caramel layer was perfect.

🔹Tortino al Cioccolato. Choco lava cake. I liked this but it's a dessert I would have to share.

As usual, it was a fun event. Thanks to Andrew and Mikee, the looloo crew Pam L. Gwen I. and Peanut D.! And of course, thanks as well to fellow loolooers, Clarissa P. Kevinross B. EJ B. Patrick V. Angela Marie C. Ruth S. Mary Love S. (in order of appearance). 128522

What do you do when someone puts 5 delicious-looking pizzas in front of you? You forget about the word 'diet' and unleash the patay-gutom within.

I immediately said 'Yes' when I received Peanut D's email. Pizza na, sa baba lang ng office namin yung place so swak na swak! 128076🏻

When I arrived, I met Mikee and Andrew, the marketing head and the owner, respectively.. and of course I also met fellow looloo reviewers! (First rendezvoos kaya medyo pa-shy muna.)

While waiting for the others, we had the chance to talk to Mikee who explained to us that Peperoni is the first F&B venture of CMG Philippines. They franchised it from Singapore where Andrew went to regularly during his college days. They're opening their second branch in UP Town soon so North peeps can enjoy Peperoni as well!128077🏻

Okay chibog time!

They first served the Calamari Fritti(P355) and the Funghi Portobello con Pollo.(P455). The calamari came with two sauces, lemon mayo and arabiatta, but the arabiatta was the winner. I liked the red wine sauce and the crunch of the portobello. Both were definitely panalo! 128076🏻

Next they served the pasta, Aglio Olio e Peperoncino(P340). The pasta was cooked perfectly! It was a little spicy for me but I liked the garlic-y taste that it had. The serving is good enough to share I think.

And then came the pizzas! 127829

I first got a taste of the Bacon Miele(Bacon, honey, fresh oregano, gouda cheese) which was specially made for the PH as they know Filipinos love salty & sweet. They tried it in SG and it became a hit there as well! I looove bacon. It was a little sweet for me. Just a little bit. But It was good!

Then I tried the Pancetta(Cured bacon, sliced tomatoes and soft egg). It was a little mushy maybe because the pizza got soaked in the soft egg but I loved the flavor.

Next, the Pepperoni & Quattro Formaggi (Mozzarela, Talaggio, Scamorza and Gorgonzola). I liked the Pepperoni more than the crowd favorite, the four cheese, just because it had more flavor in my opinion.

Lastly, the pizza with the dahon! Lol. The Prosciutto Crudo di Parma(Parma ham and rocket salad). Damn medyo lumalaban. It was really hard to slice. This was just OK for me. Hirap lang kainin I guess kaya di masyadong pak na pak.

Pizza:
9" (Medium) - P380
12" (Large) - P565
21" (XXL) - P1250

Oops may dessert pa! (I should've worn a loose shirt.)

They served Tiramisu(P275), Crème Brulee(P240) and Tortino al Cioccolato(P365). Not a fan of the Tiramisu, it was kinda mushy for me although the presentation was beautiful! I loved the Crème Brulee & Tortino. Especially the molten chocolate cake! It was not overly sweet and it was rich, moist. Damn! I wish the serving was bigger though. Baka maka-tatlo ako nito. Huhu. The candied pistachios that came with it were also great.

Overall, it was a great first rendezvoos! The food was great, the hosts and fellow reviewers were awesome. It was nice meeting you all Gwen, Pam, Ruth, Clarissa, Kevin, Mary Love, Ruth and of course Mikee & Andrew (Kung nababasa niyo man 'to. 128075🏻) And it was great seeing EJ & Angela again!

Thank you to looloo & Peperoni Pizzaria for the invite! 128077🏻

It is always a joy to receive an invite from Peanut D to join a looloo rendezvoos. But this time I was more excited because the rendenzvoos took place at a restaurant that I really wanted to try. Why? BECAUSE PIZZA!!! Lol

When I arrived at the place, I noticed how bright and tidy their interior was. Everything was in place which gave me an impression of a very clean and organized restaurant. I was first greeted by the owner, Andrew and their head of marketing, Mikee. I honestly thought they were also looloo reviewers too coz they look so young! Haha! One of the best things about joining looloo rendezvoos is to be able to talk to the owner and ask more about the background of the restaurant. And while waiting for others, I had a chat with Andrew. He said that this was their first try out F&B since their main business is CMG Philippines, a leading brand of footwear for women. He used to be a regular customer of Peperoni back in Singapore during his college days where the Italian restaurant originated and then soon became an owner here in the PH when the owners chanced upon his dad while looking for business partners to bring Peperoni Pizzeria here in the Philippines.

Now to the food:

127865Raspberry Iced Tea – I like raspberry flavor, so I liked this one! It wasn’t that evident since I didn’t want to fill up my tummy with liquid and not be able to eat as much pizza that I wanted. Haha!

🍽 Calamari Fritti – Deep fried squid rings with lemon mayo and arrabiatta sauce was one of the appetizers that was served to us. The squid was really good! Not chewy at all. For the sauce, arrabiatta was my favorite.

🍽 Funghi Portobello con Pollo – Deep fried whole Portobello with sautéed chicken fillet in red wine sauce. I really liked this one too! Nice crunch to the dish!

127837 Aglo Olio e Peperoncino – An oil based pasta with garlic and some chili. The pasta was cooked perfectly, but for me the flavor wasn’t enough. I needed a little bit more of saltiness and less more of that burnt garlic taste. Yup, the garlic was burnt. I’m not sure if that was intentional.

127829 Diavola (Pepperoni) Pizza – The pepperoni they used was a bit too salty for me. This pizza was ok.

127829 Prosciutto crudo di parma (Parma ham & rocket salad) – This was my favorite! I expected this to be salty too because it had parma ham, but wasn’t! Maybe because of the rocket salad? It’s nice to have fresh greens on a pizza rich in cheese and meat.

127829 Pancette (Cured bacon, sliced tomatoes & soft egg) – This is a cool concept where the soft egg in the middle of the pizza would be broken down to spread the yolk all over the pizza before slicing it, but for me was another salty pizza. L

127829 Quattro Formaggi – Really good pizza! I’ve always been a fan of 4 cheese pizza.

🍽 Tiramisu Cake – Not a big fan of Tiramisu so it was just ok for me. It has more of a coffee flavor that I can barely taste the alcohol. (Not saying that I was looking for the alcohol. I’m just saying in case you’re wondering. Haha)

🍽 Crème Brule – Another so-so dessert for me.

🍽 Totino al cioccolato – SOLID 5/5! This was my favorite out off desserts I tried! A rich molten chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream and candied pistachio might be the highlight of my experience here. I really loved the balanced in density and sweetness of the cake! A must try! 128077🏼

Overall, there were some dishes that I liked and didn’t like, but the good about their pizzas is that their topping are pretty straight forward. Nothing very fancy or not to much toppings to make sure each pizza stands out. If you’re not sure of what to choose, here are my recommendations:

For starters:

Funghi Portobello con Pollo

Main:

Prosciutto crudo di parma and/or Quattro Formaggi

Dessert:

Totino al cioccolato – Maybe 2 orders? Lol

An email from Peanut D marks the start of (crash) diet. With all the scheduled eat ups, I had to make more tummy space for… more food. I tried my best to have smaller meals but realized after a spoonful or two that such is an impossible task. And no shortcut could prepare me for last night’s rendezvoos. (Yes, looloo uses double o’s because 1) looloo has two double o’s and 2) why not?!)

Hello, Peperoni Pizzeria!

Firs off, thank you so much for waiting for us! I know we were a couple of hours late but we still felt the warm welcome. Thank you too for allowing three superb pizzas sit for 2 hours for us to take photos. I did my best to take nice photos of it.

Our gracious host, Andrew, asked Ruth S and I what we want to try right after our brief greeting. Still awkward from our unacceptable tardiness, we asked for the pizzas to be heated. But Andrew refused and had us order one pasta and he also had a half-half of Prosciutto Crudo di Parma and Bacon Miele (PHP380, 9” | PHP565, 12” | PHP1,250, 21”) and Tortino al Cioccolato (PHP365). For our pasta, we chose Aglio Olio e Peperocino (PHP340).

First served was the half and half pizza and it sure smelled so good. I got a whiff of the sweet aroma of honey and the sharp smell of cheese as soon as the plate was served. The pasta and dessert were served soon after and we didn’t even notice it as we were busy taking photos of the picturesque half and half pizza. After a few more snapshots, we started to dig in.

The pasta was cooked al dente and had a garlicky and slightly spicy taste. One order is definitely great for sharing; though one won’t have any trouble finishing a bowl alone as the dish isn’t cloying.

The Prosciutto Crudo di Parma could get very salty because of the thin cured ham topping so make sure that you enjoy each mouthful with some rocket salad to offset the saltiness.

The Bacon Miele was something new to me. The pizza sure was salty too because of the generous serving of bacon bits and gouda cheese. But the saltiness of these two favorites were somehow balanced by the sweetness of the honey and refreshing flavor of oregano. The toppings just didn’t blend so well though as there were some parts that were too salty or too sweet.

After finishing my pizza slices, I began to devour the heavenly molten chocolate cake.

It sure was moist, rich and not an inch short of being called divine. It had the right amount of sweetness and density. It wasn’t light nor heavy making it the perfect dessert to cap the night. It went well with the scoop of vanilla ice cream which created a nice play between the warm lava cake and the cold sweet ending. I also loved the candied pistachio and strawberry bits which added texture and burst of different flavors to the dessert. I would definitely go back for more of this!

Overall, it was a fun night! I discovered a new dessert favorite and I got a chance to catch up with friends and meet other looloo-ers. Thank you, looloo and Peperoni!

It was nice to meet you Angela Marie C EJ B Gwen I Kevinross B Pam L and Patrick V! And it's always awesome to chat with you Clarissa P Ruth D and Ruth S!
